Day 3 – Jan 3, 2016

 

Day 3

FullSizeRender-4

Hello, it’s still wet here in London, so I wore my wellies today. It made it easier to walk through puddles and hop on buses and trains. I didn’t feel like wearing a dress so I settled on this jacket. I’ve had it for 3 years and  love it because it’s shinny and was a parting gift from the office where I served my Nigerian national service. Can you see the yellow and shiny beads on the jacket? Look closely at the white sections.  Here’s a better picture.

I know the gentleman that made this jacket; his mother taught him to sew. We were both completing our national service at the same company, and he made me a number of beautiful clothes. I get compliments every time I wear the jacket, which makes me grin because its a jacket that brings back good memories.
